Hot happenings in Austin, Texas tonight. The whole blogverse is sure to be abuzz with this by morning, but you heard it here first. Albert S. Burleson, perhaps familiar to y'all as President Wilson's Postmaster General, has come out for Smith! That should parry any thrusts from Lone Star papaphobes.
The Father of Airmail is also calling for serious reform of the Volstead Act. One more hard-drinking Texas Aggie in Smith's column! Those Aggies ain't weak sisters, sister.
